A Real Man Never Hits A Woman

by evilnymphstuff
They married and lived happily ever after until the end of their lives… or not? That’s where the story really begins, by their union, for weeks and months they remain in happiness, in love, pierced by Cupid’s arrow, entwined in their blood dripping from an illusion which is often called Love. Unfortunately for most women, it was indeed an illusion. A dream. And she ends up waking up one morning to realize that the man who sleeps next to her is a stranger.
It begins with a small slap, a sweet blow, a  nice reproach. Then the man becomes monster when the situation hardens into consecutive shoves, violent slaps in the face and insults that stabs the entire body. The man she thought was the One this time is actually the worst of what she might have had.
But a woman loves her husband, and when she loves, she forgives. He then apologizes with all his heart and she welcomes him back into her life. He sends her flowers and she kisses him.They again become lovers like the first time. And history repeats itself. The cycle continues…

Nora Roberts Review

by evilnymphstuff

It’s been a while since I’ve been reading Nora Roberts and recently I’ve borrowed one of her books: Blood Brothers; and I’ve thought about making a sort of praise and critic Nora Roberts post. Therefore…

What I like about her:

She knows how to capture her readers – whether they be horror books fan or romance book fans. Her writing is defined and beautiful. She has the ability to write about anything really… fortunately for me because I don’t like 100% romantic books… but at the same time she is faithful to what she has already decided: to write romance books. She knows her subject very well and does some research before writing. Very easy to read and description doesn’t make one sleep… :)

What I don’t like about her:

Her romantic stories are too… well too dreamy, “soulmates”-like, unrealistic… and when I read her books it hurts because I know it just can’t be like that in real life. She always follow the same pattern: if she writes a trilogy there are 6 main characters: 3 men and 3 women – and in each book Nora tells the story of each couple. After some time you get bored with her novels because you already know this pattern – therefore no unexpected turnover of the romantic story, no cheating ;) then you better prefer and concentrate on the background story i.e. the horror included one or mystery included one… :)

Thus her single books are better as the romantic story in them are more profounded and better told… but not for me because I don’t like romance ^^ compared to the trilogies which are full of different themes!
